Colt has once again placed one of its 1911s at the side of America's armed forces, this time with the Colt Marine Pistol. The Colt Rail Gun was selected to be the latest sidearm of the United States Marine Corps—marking the first time a Colt 1911 has been shipped to the United States Government since the end of World War II.

The Marine Pistol stands out with a Desert Tan cerakoted stainless steel receiver and slide, and sports Novak 3 Dot Night Sights. Other features include an enhanced hammer, Colt's Tactical Ambidextrous Safety Lock and a 5" National Match Barrel.
